Autumn 2016 preview

Neregate has done its chart already; it's probably not absolutely complete but it's pretty large, so let's see what horrors await us.

As usual I'm not going to comment on everything, just on things that caught my attention.

AniTore EX is getting a sequel. Which is really strange; it was a 5-minute show about girls doing exercises, so what's to sequel? One of the girls was stunning. She was also rich and had her own indoor swimming pool


And she had a ferret that liked to crawl into her cleavage.


So at the very least we'll get more of her.

Gakuen Handsome has the sharpest pointy chins you've ever seen on the guys. They look life threatening!

Hibiki Euphonium is coming back for a sequel. I didn't watch the first series but I know some of you did.

Watashi ga Motete Dousunda is... well... this deserves to be quoted because I can't do it justice:

Kae Serinuma was an overweight fujoshi until one of her favorite characters died and she lost weight from the shock. When she returns to school, four attractive boys ask her out, but all Kae wants is to see them kiss each other.

I am NOT going to say anything about fat yaoi fangirls. I'm not!

Nazotokine doesn't have a plot summary yet. All we know is that the main character has the figure we like. Aside from that it's anybody's guess what's going on.

Vivid Strike might be set in the Nanohaverse but it doesn't appear to be part of the "Nanoha Vivid" continuity.

Soushin Shoujo Matoi is about miko-magic, and miko-magic is always a good thing.

Keijo is this season's total-pander series. (There's always at least one.) You can tell just from the intro video on the web site. LOTS of T&A; lots of gainaxing. And a thoroughly stupid series concept which justifies the fact that the girls spend a lot of time in bikinis bumping each other with their butts.

Brave Witches is part of the Strike Witches canon, but this story is about the 502 "Brave Witches". Who are also known as the "Suomus Misfit Squadron". If you've seen the Strike Witches movie, the 502 is where Sanya and Eila were assigned, and where one of their squad mates got hit by lightning while flying in. Well, she's in this show.

Other stuff: Bikini Warriors is getting an OVA, God knows why. Musaigen no Phantom World is getting an OVA and I'm looking forward to that. Tenchi Muyou RyouOuki has been dug out of its grave, cleaned up, and is getting a 4th season. Kancolle is getting a movie.

As usual there's a lot of stuff I haven't got the slightest interest in, like the 97th Gundam show, and half a dozen shows about idols, but overall it looks more promising than usual. Sure as hell better than this summer, I tell you.

1 Summer is great here. More shows than time to watch. ReLIFE alone makes it a memorable season. Add to it LLS, Planetarian, S&L, Saiki, and a bunch of others in my Crunchy queue, and it becomes memorable indeed. Or it would become, except I do not track seasons closely.

2 Everyone has different tastes.

3 I might be wrong about "Vivid Strike". ANN has a cast list, and Vivio, Einhart, Corono and Rio are listed as characters. Also Nove and Yumina. Yumina isn't introduced in the manga until the school festival arc, which happens after Ixy wakes up and after Vivio and Einhart's fourth match. So it looks like this is the continuation of Nanoha Vivid -- which is a good thing.

4 I'm pretty sure you know why Bikini Warriors is getting an OAV.

Tenchi Muyou is back? Cool, it was one of my old favorites.

5 There are three new statuettes in the Bikini Warriors line (Cleric, Hunter, Valkyrie) and they want to pimp them.

6 Well, those are new characters. There are now 9 statuettes total and three of them are being introduced with this new series, but two of them are repeats. Hunter, Cleric, and Valkyrie are new characters in the line, but there isn't a Cleric statuette yet. On the other hand, there are two of the Valkyrie and two of the Magic User.
